Wild Human has always been totally committed and dedicated to the development, refinement and re-discovery of wilderness skills and knowledge, often pioneering new skill-sets and experiences, to empower others to enjoy nature. It is not our goal to be the busiest or the biggest, but rather to continue to strive to bring genuine, authentic and transformational experiences, expeditions and courses that provide the opportunity for real skill acquisition and personal development.
All of courses are run out of two sites in the Lake District with the exception being the Coastal Forager, which is run in Scotland.
Claife Heights is a 2000 acre private Estate situated on the Western shores of Windermere. It is comprised of mixed stands of Beech, Noble Fir, Spruce, Rowan, Birch and Oak. And is home to a healthy population of Red and Roe Deer, Foxes, Badgers and a plethora of small mammals and woodland birds. We utilise a Edwardian Tarn (small lake) and accompanying stone Boat House for some of our courses and evening swims in the summer are a great way to cool off after a day of learning. This site is surrounded by fields and open fell and gives use a wide range of habitat to explore from a foraging and tracking perspective.
Claife Heights has easy access to Windermere train station and the M6.
Witherslack is the largest unbroken tract of Broadleaf woodland in the Lake District and provides us with the perfect location to base our Bushcraft & Craft courses. Oak, Ash, Hazel, Cherry, Yew and Rowan provide dappled shade and the floor of the forest is carpeted with wild flowers.
Witherslack is located in the South Lakes and is a 15 minute drive from Kendal.
